Didasca and Aica are jointly promoting the ‘Back to School’ initiative. This initiative addresses the needs of adult citizens who want to learn how to ‘Read, Write and Do Math digitally’.

‘Back to School’ is a set of tutored courses grouped in two different Trails:

  • Google Trail: Gmail, Docs, Sheets
  • Microsoft Trail: Outlook, Word, Excel

This initiative will be launched on 6 December 2018. Each online Course will take eight weeks to complete and will be delivered via Google Classrooms, in the Google Trail, and via Skype for Education, in the Microsoft Trail.

Tutoring will be provided by the members of ‘DIDASforce - Task Force for Innovation in Education’. Learners will receive an Open Badge and a Certificate of completion secured with Blockchain technology.

By the end of 2024, Didasca and Aica will provide 200,000 Italian citizens with the digital skills they need at work.
